After Cloud Monitor is scaled out or the technical architecture is improved to support more services, you can add these services and their instances to application groups. This allows you to manage alert rules and view monitoring data for these services by application group.

Prerequisites

An application group is created. For more information, see Create an application group.

Background information

Only Elastic Compute Service (ECS), ApsaraDB RDS, and Server Load Balancer (SLB) instances can be automatically added to application groups. You must manually add instances of other services to application groups.
